MIT Enterprise Forum Event Gathers Industry Experts To Promote Entrepreneurship and Sustainable Societies In Mexico

Cambridge, MA—March 10, 2015: MIT Enterprise Forum ( is pleased to announce the second annual MIT Enterprise Forum Mexico 2015, to be held in Guadalajara, Mexico on March 24–25, 2015. MITEF Mexico will bring together over a thousand entrepreneurs, academics, students, technologists, and key leaders in business and technology to create a space for inspiration, discussion, and action.

With over 18 international speakers, 20 specialized workshops, four panel discussions, and even an event focused on teaching robotics to children aged 8 to 12, MIT Enterprise Forum Mexico 2015 promises to be a very exciting event.

“Sustainable societies” is the theme of the event—a call to action for the next generation of scientists and entrepreneurs to generate solutions for a more sustainable Mexico. “The tremendous entrepreneurial potential of Mexican scientists and engineers is a national resource that is just beginning to be tapped. They are accelerating the transformation of Mexico’s innovation economy, reducing economic inequality while solving significant social problems that afflict countries around the world,” says Jose Pacheco, chairman and co-founder of the MIT Enterprise Forum Mexico chapter.

The second day, StartSmart Mexico, is a day geared toward informing entrepreneurs, coaching them, and connecting them with the ideas and people they need to succeed. The event will include case studies and lessons from successful technology entrepreneurs and investors, interactive workshops, pitches from local entrepreneurs, networking, and a startup showcase. “We are supporting and empowering the next generation of entrepreneurs through a binational ecosystem of seasoned entrepreneurs, academics, and corporations from Mexico and the U.S.,” says Ricardo Godinez, co-founder of MITEF Mexico.
